Thanks for the continued suggestions.

Just last night, DD1 asked me if we could do dairy dinners (meaning no red meat or poultry) more than once a week. Meanwhile, DD2 doesnt' feel satisfied if she doesnt' have meat daily.

The last time I had fish for dinner, I'd given DD2 leftover meat for lunch. So I'll need to plan on having enough leftover meat when I make fish for dinner.

DD1 didn't really like the salmon patties that much- I don't think she ate enough to even count as a full "fish serving" once you account for the eggs and rice flour in them. Asian-flavored tuna patties are a good idea; I think I'll try that next.

I wonder if I could make tuna or salmon "meatballs" with some kind of gravy. What are some ideas for a sauce that would taste  good over fish? Remember that DS and I can't have tomatoes and there are no mutually compliant cheeses. For meat or poultry I'd make a gravy,  but how do I make a fish gravy?

Is butter or ghee with fish kosher? If so maybe a butter/dill sauce or maybe a pesto with fish balls and rice noodles. Let me look at a cookbook I have after I get home.

There are some groups of Jews who won't mix fish and dairy products (I'm not sure if it's strictly a kosher concern or if it has another source) but that's not how we hold. Mixing dairy (such as ghee or butter) with fish is no problem for my family.

Okay here is a link    http://www.alaskaseafood.org/canned/recipes/recipes.html
Maybe you can modify some of the recipes. If I run across anything in one of my cookbooks I'll repost to the thread but no joy so far.

Did you make the frittata?  OTOH if your daughter is an Explorer she can't have eggs regularly.

Broccolli quiche is a breakfast staple. I don't want to rely on eggs for dinner, too. DD2 and I need plenty of animal protien, DD1 needs to cut back on the red meat. Really, the only way to balance everybody's SWAMI needs is if we make fish at dinnertime.

GFG- no joke about having to adapt those recipes for compliance! There are some good ideas in there, I just need to read through all the recipes to glean out what I can actualy use.

Whoops missed that part.  I think you said your daughter didn't like the salmon patties.  Could you bring in some tartar sauce?  I'm not even sure what that is made from.      Fish unfortunately isn't that versatile.

I was just thinking, can you do a compliant tuna helper? I know kids usually like that... just a thought.

tuna melts on compliant breads

For those wanting menu suggestions, the new Personalized Living cookbooks contain 4 weeks of menus for the blood type diet.

Do those suggested menus accomodate more than one blood type in the menu planning?

Each book is for a specific blood type and the menus are appropriate for the Blood Type of the book.

So I'd still need to brainstorm to figure out dinner menus for my entire family, which was the original purpose to this thread.

Ruthie,
I often make Tinkyada pasta (I like the vegetable one the best but the others are good too).  I add a can or 2 of tuna and whatever veggies I have around - typically for me baby spinach, tomatoes (I know you can't have those) broccoli or squash or even artichoke hearts, whatever I have around.  I add goat's milk cheese (cheddar or mozzarella) or feta and warm it slightly in the microwave to melt the cheese.  It's pretty filling and quick and easy.  You could put out small bowls of the different cheeses so the kids could pick what's compliant for them.  My problem is that it makes too much and I end up eating it for days on end or throwing it out after several days.  I sometimes add a little Lemonaise which is pretty compliant (think there might be a little vinegar but mostly compliant).
You've got to have Ph'd to figure it all out with your 3 kids!  I think you do a terrific job.
